Gentle Lion Continues Zoom Class
For those of you who have attended our remote Zoom classes, since we recalibrated and started them on April 1st, 2020, we have had amazing times of fellowship, prayer, encouragement and camaraderie, to say the least. Every Wednesday at 7 AM, we continue our book studies, currently finishing up the "Irresistible Husband" study by Ed Cole. We also have other studies in the works, specifically Play the Man by Mark Batterson. These resources are available with no charge to you. Please stop by our office in Bend to pick up your copy! If you are joining us from a distance we will mail a copy to you. Please just let us know. We look forward to seeing you at zoom.us/j/6700065485 this Wednesday!
You were not created for autonomy. You were created for community! Please take your role in your home seriously and engage with your spouse, children, family, friends. We pray that you will join one of our classes, be challenged as a person and grow at an even deeper level.

“Lies Women Tell Themselves"
Do you ever think about and wonder why you may still struggle to fully love or forgive yourself and others? So much of what you have come believe, which hinders on healthy self-acceptance and love, is actually based on the LIES you have learned and have told yourself and others - over and over. Can these lies be modified to God’s truth? Yes!
Our next 6 week zoom series is based on the books by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (Lies Woman Believe and the Truth that Sets them Free) and Shelley Maurice-Maier (Pathways to Godly Self-Love: Crossing the Healing Bridge).
Please join us for this free series which begins April 6th and runs through May 11th each Tuesday evening from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. These two books and other materials are included at no cost. Please register here. at Gentlelion.org/events and then clicking on Gentle Lioness. The zoom link of zoom.us/j/6700065485 will remain the same throughout this series and will be sent out after each zoom meeting.

For those of you who have attended our remote Zoom classes, since we recalibrated with COVID and started them on April 1st, 2020, we have had amazing times of fellowship, prayer, encouragement and camaraderie, to say the least. Starting this Wednesday March 3rd at 7 am, we will start a new study called "The Power of Potential", based on the book and study guide that Edwin Louis Cole (CMN Founder) wrote. We have ordered these books and they will be available with no charge to you. Please stop by our office in Bend or the Lion's Den in Redmond to pick up your copy! If you are joining us from a distance we will mail a copy to you. Please just let us know. We look forward to seeing you at zoom.us/j/6700065485 this Wednesday March 3rd!
Gentle Lion Men: If you are ready to meet together at our headquarters office, now is your chance! Starting tomorrow, March 2nd at 7 AM, we are kicking-off a 4 week series entitled, "Guardrails". Guardrails are designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas. They minimize damage by keeping us in the safety zone. But the highway isn’t the only place we need guardrails. We need guardrails in our life and hope that you will join us as we get together and dig into this important topic together. You won't want to miss this helpful class, starting tomorrow at 7 AM at 616 Arizona Ave, Bend, OR 97703. Social distancing guidelines will be respected.
Gentle Lion Men: get ready to work on yourself and learn how to be a better husband through the Promise Keepers Marriage Summit. In this 2-hour event, we’ll discuss the real issues impacting your marriage every day, including communication, respect, and sex from a variety of engaging speakers. This 3-week challenge that will place you side-by-side with our Gentle Lion men, as you build up your marriages in concrete ways. On the Promise Keepers app (free in the app store) you'll receive additional marriage resources and practical tools, engage in meaningful discussions and small groups, participate in weekly challenges, and more. You won't want to miss this great class. The link to watch the PK Marriage Summit (already viewed by about 100,000 people) is found at: https://youtu.be/PhJOMlmUXY4 Please watch the video based on the corresponding date in preparation for each class. We will break out the Marriage Summit into three part class series, as follows:
Please consider joining our newest 6 week Zoom series, beginning Tuesday February 2nd through March 9th from 7-8 PM. Our discussions will be based on Nancy Leigh DeMoss' book, "Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets them Free." In this first 2021 Series, we will focus on the 5 most common lies we believe about our circumstances (i.e. If my circumstances were different, I would be different.")
So why join? Many of us have experienced deep defeats and failures, trouble and turmoil, resulting in poor spirits, anger, envy and bitterness and particularly while attempting to navigate through extra 2020 challenges created with COVID and the political atmosphere. The circumstances of this past year have certainly added to our stress and compiled negative reactions, many stemming from lies we have unnecessarily believed all throughout our lives. Our journey will guide us through how God's truth can help change that. So, Gentle Lionesses, together let's GET FREE!
Simply register below for the Gentle Lioness class. The link for our group call will be the same that we use every week: zoom.us/j/6700065485
Blessings to all you wonderful woman and looking forward to our time together.
If you have been a part of our Wednesday men's 7 am Zoom calls, you know how life-giving then are. You won't want to miss the next series! The next book we are going to be working through is called "Guts and Manhood: Four Irrefutable Attributes of Courage". This book is available in a digital PDF download (please click on the download below). Major B and LD3 will be leading this group and the material is timely and our group discussion will be tremendous. The link for our group call will be the same that we use every week: zoom.us/j/6700065485 We look forward to talking through the content with each of you and sharing what God has been showing each of us, the aspects of our life and how we can encourage each other in our faith, work, marriage, fatherhood, traps, stories and dreams.
Dear Gentle Lionesses, on Tuesday October 6th from 7-8 PM our classes restart via Zoom. We hope that you will join with other women to be encouraged as we dig in and explore the topic of "MOVING BEYOND COPING TOWARD THRIVING DURING EXTRAORDINARY TIMES". As we progress together through our weekly one hour Tuesday evening sessions, we will learn how to effect practical and realistic positive changes over individual circumstances immediately available to anyone wanting to help themselves and each other (see below details). Please join us for this virtual class series at: zoom.us/j/6700065485
